At around 9am two BNSF freight trains collided near the town of Panhandle along Highway 60.  

They are asking drivers to please avoid the area as authorities are attending rescue efforts. There are police, fire, and ambulance crews on the scene. There is also a lot of blowing smoke so please again stay away from that area if you can. The roads are still open but be very cautious. As of right now it's unknown if there were any casualties in the accident. We will continue to monitor our media partner KAMR and keep you updated on this news.

Keep everyone out there in your prayers!
